'American Fugitive' (ALL) Gets Release Date - Screens & Trailer

American Fugitive is a modern take on classic sandbox action offering a new 3D top-down open-world single-player experience.

Welcome to Redrock County, a sleepy American town with a booming criminal underbelly.

You take the role of Will Riley. No angel for sure - but not a killer. Yet the cold-blooded murder of your dad is the crime they locked you up for. Fuelled by grief and a burning desire for vengeance, you’ll bust out of jail intent on finding the real culprit.

Once outside, you’ll need to blend with the townsfolk to avoid recapture. Establish contact with the criminal underworld and stay one step ahead of the police dragnet.

Set in the deep south of the 1980s, American Fugitive is a love-letter to the classic movies and games of old.

An ensemble cast of characters will offer players perilous missions and a chance to set things right. But can any of them be trusted to help Will uncover the truth? Are their motives as questionable as their integrity?

Through the fast-paced gameplay the player will discover the joy of top-down carnage with stunning 3D graphics and destructible environments, dramatic storytelling and epic car-chase mayhem.


"Having just returned from a round of press events and game conventions, we're buzzing with excitement after seeing how much fun people were having with American Fugitive! Gamers were having a blast causing absolute carnage on the poor residents of Redrock County! We can't wait for you to get your hands on American Fugitive so you can create your own unique chaos (and find justice for Will, don't forget!)," said Fallen Tree Games art director Lewis Boadle.

Key features include:

  • A mature action game based on an original story – Unravel a plot of mystery, deception and corruption, full of twists and turns, inhabited by a motley cast of law-breakers and law- enforcers.
  • A massive open-world environment - Explore Redrock County, a beautiful and vibrant slice of 80s rural north America, on foot or by car.
  • Choose the life of a felon - Rob houses, steal cars, arm yourself to the teeth. Just don’t get caught!
  • Pedal to the Metal - test yourself against time trial challenges and stunt jumps dotted throughout the world, using any of the numerous vehicles.
  • A wealth of activities – Undertake jobs for the criminal underworld, uncover hidden stashes, loot houses, stick up stores, fence fine art, eat donuts and more.

American Fugitive is the latest creation from Fallen Tree Games, an independent studio made of AAA talented developers previously known for working on titles such as TimeSplitters, Crysis, and Goldeneye 007: Reloaded. With their latest release they are looking to establish a new era in the sandbox game genre.

American Fugitive will launch on PC (Steam), PS4 (May 21), Nintendo Switch (May 23) and Xbox One (May 24) for £17.99, $/€ 19.99.
